About the Book
E-commerce taxation is a major concern for international agencies and tax authorities worldwide. In its most advanced form, e-commerce allows unidentified purchasers to pay obscure vendors in ‘electronic cash’ for products that are often goods, services and licenses all rolled into one. A payee may be no more than a computer that can take up ‘residence’ anywhere; national boundaries are of no consequence whatsoever. The current debate over taxation of e-commerce has, to some extent, been little more than a rehash of a similarly inconclusive scholarly and legislative debate that raged over mail-order sales during the 1980s. However, in the case of e-commerce, the added question is how to reconcile national fiscal boundaries with the borderless world of the internet. This book is redesigned to find out solution of these major concerns. It is hoped that this edition will be an important source of information for the students, teachers and professionals of commerce, taxation and management.
